Ron claims that Carpino’s statement of cash flows is an excellent
portrayal of a superb first year with cash increasing $105,000. Lisa
replies that it was not a superb first year. Rather, she says, the year was

an operating failure, that the statement is presented incorrectly, and that
$105,000 is not the actual increase in cash. The cash balance at the
beginning of the year was $140,000.
With the class divided into groups, answer the following.
